Bert Gallery before I had to report to my job. This is the first time breaking in the new truck for exactly what I bought it for, a painting transportation vehicle. It did well and by the end of next week, when I deliver even more paintings to another exhibit I just finalized, it should settle in to saddle.
The Bert show opens on January 13, with a reception on January 16 (2-3). I'll be showing 12 paintings from the Shoemaker series, and I have to say they look pretty good on Bert's freshly painted raw sienna walls.
Another show, which came up suddenly and out of the blue, is at Roger Williams University Law School Library in Bristol, RI. I'll be showing a variety of work from the last 10 years in the second floor atrium lounge. More details to come.
Then in March, I'll be installing my church paintings as part of the Providence Art Windows project. My window is on Fulton street, just to the left of City Hall, and right next to the wonderful Big Nazo Puppet windows. You can see my space above the black pickup (currently exhibiting work by Amy DiPlacido).
As a result, most of my paintings will be out of studio storage for awhile. I'm looking forward to seeing the empty racks... even if it's only temporary.
